And for this one, we gotta give it to Matt and Ross Duffer for bringing back the nostalgic pop culture that once captivated audiences in the 1980s. Of course, TV shows would be incomplete without those big hairs and bigger shoulder pads, since 'the bigger, the better' had always been the mantra of the era. For sure, only true Gen-Xers would remember! But yeah, before actually delving into the list of the best 80s TV shows, it is important to give credits to Netflix to resurrecting and bringing back the retro vibes in this day and age.
